Westchester for Change Message Board › New Meetup: GET EMPOWERED:RENEWABLE ENERGY NOW!

Announcing a new Meetup for Westchester for Change!

When: Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:00 PM

Where: Town of Greenburgh
177 Hillside Ave (2nd floor, right off elevator)
White Plains, NY 10603
(914) 993-1500

Why: It is important to explore viable alternatives to fossil fuels, especially since dangerous hydraulic fracturing could begin as early as this summer in NY. It is time for our country to invest in renewables and move in that direction.

Westchester for Change presents GET EMPOWERED: RENEWABLE ENERGY NOW! A Panel Discussion on Post-Fossil Fuel Energy Solutions that Preserve New York’s Natural Resources

This event is part of a series of energy-related topics including the forum entitled Energy Legislation and the Environment: Spotlight on Capitol Hill, a screening of the film Gasland by Josh Fox, and a presentation on the detrimental effects of hydraulic fracturing by a New York City grassroots group, United for Action, that drew over 65 attendees in March.

We will focus on how we can reconcile what New York HAS with what New York NEEDS. Speakers will discuss the costs and benefits of investment in post-fossil fuel, non-nuclear, renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, hydro-power, geothermal, and others, which can protect New York’s precious water supply and environment while providing necessary growth in the economic sector. How can New York’s need for economic development be coupled with the need for renewable energy to generate viable alternatives to dangerous gas drilling (hydraulic fracturing) and nuclear power?

Co-Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Westchester

Moderator: Megan Klein, Associate Attorney of Earthjustice

I wish I could be there but cannot... In any case wanted to share a link in case any of you want to bring it up in the frakking discussion:­
This horrible spill of frakking fluid happened in Pennsylcania last week.
